quick and easy ingredients

Tips:

1) Frozen minced garlic can be found at many groceries stores packaged in small little cubes, as shown in photo. This can save time. Allow 2 cubes to come to room temperature before adding to the spices.

2) Using a store-bought, good quality roasted chicken goes a long way in saving time. Try to find a roasted chicken with no spices or remove the skin and spices before adding the chicken to the soup.

3) Some stores sell small cans of coconut milk (about 5 oz.). This is a nice option if you think that the milk will go to waste if you buy larger can.

4) Good quality, organic, canned tomatoes are actually preferable to using fresh tomatoes and again, it saves time.

5) This recipe is fairly spicy. If you don’t like a lot of spice, cut back slightly on the cayenne pepper, curry and Old Bay. If you like your food super spicy, add a bit more.
